It's Sexy!

I just got my new Pentax K-01 from B&H (back in stock there) and I was talking a few pics in a coffeeshop. Anyways these two hot chicks came up to me and said "I love your new camera", and "It's Sexy". Well you can't argue with that, IT`S SEXY. Any other opinion is irrelevant. What a fantastic piece of technology at an incredible price, and hey it's A CHICK MAGNET, best be getting one before they are all gone.

No it really happened = a few minutes ago. They were so used to seeing the standard old dull looking slr that the unigue look of the K-01 took them by surprise. They really liked it`s look - something quite different. I wasn`t expecting that.

Personally I was surprised how comfortable it is to hold and shoot with, especially based on some of the comments I had read.

Shhh! It won't work when everyone has one!

It (the yellow one, at least) has been described on occasion as "better than a puppy"!

I hated the K01 since the moment I saw it. I'm ordering a yellow one now.

Taking the game to a whole new level. Thought I have to admit, that does sound like the opening paragraph of an erotic story. lol

Forget the picture, working on the video right now!

Mine is the black one btw, if I knew the yellow one was better than a puppy I would have got two of them.

Now if only they had said: "Sexy camera. Looks like you know how to handle a box." ( should charge Pentax for that...would be a great marketing campaign...just like the "first time" voting commercials)

I think we have done more for K-01 sales this afternoon than Pentax has in 6 months.
